You might remember my blog post about my personal information getting stolen (read it here) – people think it won’t happen to them… I hope it won’t happen to you, but it might.
Equifax announced in 2019 that they would provide U.S. consumer six free copies of their credit report from Equifax each year for seven years in connection with various settlements.
And it gets better – the reports originally were made available on-line through myEquifax. Now Equifax has announced that these reports will now be available online via AnnualCreditReport.com, rather than through myEquifax. This means that consumers no longer need to be enrolled in myEquifax to receive these reports.
What does this mean for me?
This is very good news for you. If you are a member of myEquifax, you can still access free Equifax credit reports on the myEquifax portal. Plus Equifax will be making the six free Equifax credit reports required by the settlements available to you on AnnualCreditReport.com.for both members and non Equifax members. Another great service from Equifax and the other two nationwide credit bureaus are making weekly credit reports available online via AnnualCreditReport.com through April 2021.
Having easy access to your credit information is important especially during the challenging times of COVID-19.
If you find inaccurate or incomplete information on your Equifax credit report, you can file a dispute with Equifax Information Services LLC for free through your myEquifax account. You can also place a security freeze and fraud alert on your Equifax credit report through myEquifax.
It is very important to check your credit reports often to make sure you are not a victim of fraud. In today’s world with everyone using their computers for almost everything your information is floating around and there are hackers trying to find information to use. Never use any credit cards or bank accounts on public computers.
